NBA Handicapping: Indiana Pacers will play starters vs. Miami Heat

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Rested and ready the Indiana Pacers head to Miami looking to secure the top seed in the Eastern Conference. According to reports, Indiana will play all of its starters. The Pacers have a half game lead over the Heat with three games remaining. Miami has four games left. No line as of this morning as oddsmakers wait to confirm who will play for both sides.


"There was a lot of energy at practice, they definitely had their legs," Vogel said. "The decision [to rest the starters] was every bit as much about the bench guys as the starters. Hopefully that took care of the bench, and the fresher legs will help the starters."

NBA Handicapping: Indiana Pacers somehow back in lead of Eastern Conference

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Just when looked like Indiana was waving the white flag (i.e. sitting starters) in its quest for the Eastern Conference's top seed, they went ahead and beat Milwaukee 104-102 and regained the East lead by a half game over the Miami Heat who have lost three of four. The two teams meet in South Beach on Friday.

We have to point out that while the results (-1 closing number) say the Pacers covered vs. the Bucks, keep in mind that game opened -3.5, went to -5, dropped to -2 and only an hour before game time did the line drop to -1.5/-1. In their last 23 games, the Pacers really have only one legitimate pointspread cover (91-79 as 6.5-point favorites vs. Chicago). The other two were last night’s miraculous victory and an OT win as 5-point chalk vs. Detroit.


“We accomplished the purpose,” said George, who spent the game in warm-ups after getting in some conditioning and shooting. “We felt very comfortable with the group we had, that they were going to go out there and get us a win. It wasn’t like we were sacrificing the game.

NBA Handicapping: All of sudden, Pacers not concerned about top seed

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
For today's What a Crock of You-Know-What news we have the Indiana Pacers claiming the top seed in the Eastern Conference is no longer a top priority. This after last night's slump-busting, non-covering win over Detroit. The Miami Heat are ahead of the Pacers via win percentage and have eight games remaining whereas Indiana has only six. The two teams meet in Miami next Friday.


“We can’t focus on it,” West said of the top spot. “We worked ourselves [to the point where] we’ve gotten out of sorts trying to focus on that and we haven’t played good enough basketball over the last month or so to claim it. So now it’s up for grabs and we’re behind the eight-ball in terms of that. We just have to play ball, man. Either way we’re going to have to win some tough playoff series. We’ll have to win some games on the road whether it’s early in the series or late. That’s just what it is.”

NBA Gambling: Indiana Pacers play host to Miami Heat

Miami at Indiana

The Indiana Pacers have seen their lead in the Eastern Conference playoff standings dwindle to just two games over the Miami Heat. They've lost seven of their last 12 (2-10 ATS) though eight of those 12 contests were on the highway.


"We look like sh—," West told The Star. "We're just not performing. We're just not playing well. We're not shooting the ball well. We're not sharing it and when we're not sharing it, we become stagnant."

"We just haven't been having fun," Pacers All-Star Paul George said after Tuesday's practice. "Somewhere along the line, we just forgot how much fun this game is and forgot how much fun we made it. More than that, how much fun we made this arena."

NBA Gambling: Miami Heat has high volume of games remaining

Interesting scheduling note for the Miami Heat moving forward. They play the most games of any team in the league the remainder of the regular season including six consecutive four-game weeks. We would imagine at some point that LeBron James and Dwyane Wade will see lesser minutes and even take a few games off.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: NBA Moneyburners!

Last week, I took an in-depth look at five of the biggest moneymakers in the NBA through the first half of the season.  This week I’m going to focus on the teams at the other end of the spectrum – bottom feeders and disappointments.  I’ll break down the three biggest money-losers of the season thusfar.  And I’ll take a look at a ‘morpher’; a team playing significantly worse than current market projections.

I’ll start with the three teams that can be collectively called ‘the hopeless trio’.  It’s hard to make money betting on the very worst teams in any sport, and the NBA is certainly no exception.  And there’s no question who the very worst team in the NBA is this year, because they have both the worst SU record in the league (7-29) and the worst pointspread mark (12-24 ATS).  That team?  The Milwaukee Bucks!

Bucks head coach Larry Drew has never coached a bottom feeder before.  He walked into a good situation in Atlanta with the Hawks, who made the playoffs all three years that he was coaching the team.  Here in Milwaukee, the playoffs Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Phoenix Suns at Miami Heat

Phoenix +12 at Miami O/U 201
Recommendation: Phoenix


Phoenix has been the single best pointspread team in the NBA this year; suffering only two ATS losses in their first 13 games. The Suns were widely expected to tank this season; priced as a true bottom feeder. But that simply hasn’t been the case – they’re tied for the #8 seed in the West with Memphis right now.

Suns forward Channing Frye summed it up: “We're just having fun out there….When you start losing everything you start to get real tight, so we can't be like that. We just have to get out there and have fun."

The Suns opened this road trip with a pair of SU wins on the highway.  They’ve also won SU at New Orleans, and lost at Portland by a single point; a team I have no hesitation supporting in this ‘road dog’ role.  Phoenix is happy, confident and still undervalued going into Miami tonight.

When the Heat bring their a-game, they can beat a team like Phoenix by margin.  But Miami isn’t playing to win games against second tier foes in November – they’re playing for a fourth Read more

NBA Betting News: LeBron not pleased with Heat's defense

Milwaukee at Miami -14.5 O/U 197.5

The Miami Heat have had no trouble putting the ball in the basket with 100 points or more is all seven games this season. But LeBron James isn't pleased with the team's defense, going so far as to say it has been "shit" thus far. Heading into tonight's game against Milwaukee, the Heat rank 25th in the NBA in defensive efficiency. Note that the total was bet down from 199.5 to its current number of 197.5.

NBA Gambling News: LeBron and the Heat +250 to win next year's title

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Everyone's favorite stat nerd Nate Silver says LeBron James has two more NBA Championships left in him. And not even 24 hour removed from their second straight title, the Miami Heat are even money to win the Eastern Conference and +250 to three-peat according to The Greek.


What seems safe to say is that you wouldn’t want to bet on James at even money. There are just too many things that can go wrong with a player’s career as he ages: injury or illness, early retirement, bad teammates or bad luck.

Even a team as strong as this year’s Heat began the season with only about a 30 percent chance of winning the title, according to the Las Vegas odds. That percentage happens to roughly match the historical likelihood of an N.B.A. team repeating as champion, which is 33 percent.
